Olight's Brightest EDC

Olight never fails to impress and they did it yet again with their newest R40 Seeker rechargeable LED flashlight. This light is everything you could ask for in a light, compact, dangerously bright, and rechargeable, at a fraction of the cost of competitors. Ideal for police, search and rescue, security, or domestic use. If you're tired of constantly replacing batteries and you've been looking for the perfect rechargeable light for your needs then look no further, the R40 Seeker is sure to be the perfect fit for you.

Lighting Technology

Super Bright

The R40 is equipped with the latest and greatest CREE XM-L2 LED and produces a scorching 1100 lumens on High. While in Low mode, which emits 12 lumens, the R40 can run for up to five days straight. You can shine a beam as far 280 meters, which is a little over three football fields. The multi-function side-switch allows for On/Off activation, cycles through three brightness modes, strobe, and has an LED battery status indicator. The R40 features a lock-out function, so you don't have to worry about accidentally activating the light in your pocket or bag. If you're looking for an emergency light, you can stand it upright with an optional diffuser for softer area illumination.


Never be Left in the Dark

Easily rechargeable through the built in Micro USB port that is unobtrusive located on the tail cap, you'll be able to charge the R40 just about anywhere thanks to the included USB cable. There is no excuse for this light to be dead, as there are USB outlets everywhere you look, such as your computer, TV, or power cell.

One of the best lights I own. I have tried and thrown away or gave away a lot of lights over the years and this one is so close to perfect. The only thing lacking is I wish it came with more of a spot beam. You always get wash or flood from lights but if the beam were tightened up it would be perfect. Hope your listening O-light.
Proslight weight powerful compact
ConsNo case or sheath needs to be more of a spot beam

This is a good flashlight, absolutely love it. The beam is great, fits nicely into my pocket
ConsUSB wont charge anymore, really don't know what to do with this flashlight anymore. Wish there is an optional battery charger

This light is fantastic in every respect, except one. The 26650 battery that is included is NOT a standard rechargeable 26650. I bought the light and an extra Fenix 26650 as a backup. The Olight battery and the Fenix battery have different electrode configurations. They are not interchangeable. BJ should put a notice telling folks to buy a backup Olight battery, if desired. I may have missed this in the reviews, so it's probably my fault for not knowing it ahead of time. I had to go and buy another light, so that I can use the Fenix 26650. By the way, the Fenix battery has 20% more capacity than the Olight battery.
ProsDamn bright. Easy-to-use side switch. Simple-to-change modes. Simple to lock off for travel.
ConsThe rechargeable battery is not swappable with a standard Fenix 26650.

This is the most powerful flash light I have ever purchased. I bought it on sale and said why not buy one of the best. The push button control is very easy to use. The weight and size make it a perfect go to flash light. No reason to lug around a heavy D cell that is a foot or more in length any more unless you need to use it as a club.The self contained charging system is appreciated. I know that some flash light obsessed collectors out their will say that they have something better, but for the average guy this is simply an amazing torch! I would have given it 5 stars, but have not had enough time to try it out yet.
Prossize and weight
Conswill only take specialty batteries

R40 Seeker
This is my second R40 seeker and this one is for my son-in-law who was very impressed when we used it on a recent home improvement project. He could not believe how bright it was and how long it lasts at full brightness in a compact package. I have used mine for several years in a home inspection business and it has never failed me. I get many comments about the brilliance of the light. All in all a great flash light.
Prosvery bright compact size long lasting (especially at low settings)
ConsSlow to recharge, as is everyone else with the usb charge.

I have some other flashlights, 500 or 800 lumen which get very hot if used for a few minutes. This one is a big larger but its mass absorbs the heat. Nice power, great for home defense (when paired up with a gun).

Very Bright, Very Small, USB Rechargable
Have used this light for troubleshooting in a manufacturing environment, and several of my friends have bought it for that reason. Other than the brightness, the best part about this light is the USB recharging - no need for spare batteries and/or a battery charger. I just bought a TM06 for work in the US, but will continue to bring this on overseas assignments where I want something lighter, and rechargeable. Light is very bright, with enough spill to provide even illumination at all distances. Not real crazy about the barrel mounted switch, which can be turned on inadvertently. You will know this happens when you start to feel heat building up. Plus, the switch is small, and does not provide as much tactile feel as I would like.
ProsUSB rechargeable, bright, compact size
ConsBarrel mounted switch, no belt carry pouch comes with it - it has been difficult to find one that fits.

Olight R40 Seeker Rechargeable LED Flashlight - 1100 Lumens
The Olight R40 Seeker is an excellent light that fits nicely in between the small EDC lights and the barn burners like the Olight SR51and SR52. At 1100 lumens High for those emergency times down to the more usable Medium and Low levels, the R40 covers all bets. Comes with a 26650 battery that may be charged while in the light, using the included charger; or you can use a standard USB to Micro USB cord to charge anywhere you find an active USB port. Currently, in this country there are USB connections available just about everywhere. The light has a good combination of throw and beam spill (corona) making it very useful for camping, search & rescue, LEO ops and household use. I occasionally give my regular EDC a rest and carry the R40 as an EDC light.
ProsGood package size Great selection of illumination levels Olight quality Battery included Charger included USB charging Good light to have if you can only have one

Just plain WOW!
I live on a 60 acre farm in up-state NY and my springer spaniel Walker and I will often take walks in the woods at night. I've had trouble in the past being able to know where he is,but not any more. I know where he is, and he knows where I am. The beauty of this light is that once we return home after a 1 to 2 hour walk, all I have to do is plug the USB wire into the charging port and its ready for the next nights adventure. Best investment in a flashlight that I've ever made.

Glad to get it.
I enjoyed the full range when I got it. I was showing someone Saturday its operation. The high beam quit working. The low beam & strobe still work/ The high beam will not. Any suggestions.

Olight R40
I have been an Olight fan since I've ordered my very first SR51 Intimidator, but now I have this R40 seeker which is a rechargeable, I don't have a problem changing batteries at all times because now it comes a rechargeable. It is a very sleek and comfortable flashlight, easy to manage. With a click of the button you can access all it's brightness as well as the strobe. I can bring this on all my travels abroad as it is very handy and easy to keep in one of the pockets of my messenger bag. So I give this flashlight 5 stars.

Good No Think Light
I got two. Sale price is great. As for the light, one is for my truck, and one for my bedroom nightstand. I have chargers with plenty of usb outlets handy in both places so keeping one fully charged and readily available is a no brainer. It's not a little light, but more on the size of one of the older lights that used a couple of C cells, so you know you have something in your hand

Olight R40 seeker
Great light for it's size and price. This is my second Olight and it has become my go to light around the home. It's just a little big for an EDC, (maybe in winter when a coat is needed) but fits my hand just fine. It is simple to operate with only three steps to go through to find a different brightness to suit your need, low-med and ultra high. I leave mine on medium and it remembers. Great! Strobe is easy to get to (if ever needed) at anytime on or off. I've always liked Olights and this is no exception. A great little light without trying to put too much crap into it.
ProsGood solid useful light
ConsNone I can find

Not quite there
I like the run time of the 26650 battery and the convenience of the USB charge port. There is a pronounced hot spot with even spill. What I don't like is the placement of the port and the placement of the on/off switch. It's difficult to find the on/off switch since it's exactly like a camera shutter button. It doesn't stick out far enough to be easily found. Olight should have swapped the placement or made the switch more pronounced. Would I buy it again? No. Not for this price. It doesn't even come with a pouch, just a weak lanyard. My Olight SR52 out throws this for the same price and that switch is easier to find. If you want something around the same size with a USB port, I'd prefer a Nitecore MH25.
ProsMicro USB charging port. Bright.
ConsFinding the on switch quickly. Odd size. It won't fit on a duty belt and will be hard to get out of a sap pocket.

Great light
This light is very powerful on the high and medium setting. I love how well built this light is. There is nothing cheap about it. I can't say enough about how well made this light is. I also love how the light is charged at the end of the tail cap. You just plug it in with any USB charger cord, which is easy to find. Most all cell phones use them, so you don't have to worry about finding a charge cord. This light is one of the best light I've owned. One thing for sure, you won't need another light again. P.S. The only thing that this light is missing is a clip, but I remedied that situation when I went to Walmart. I bought a cell phone holder with a clip on it, which I cut a small hole in the top to slide the light into that. What more can you ask for.

Amazingly bright, very handy!
I had never owned an LED flashlight like this before and WOW! This thing blows all of my friend's lights out of the water. I couldn't imagine going out in the dark without something like this again.
ProsVery (VERY) bright! Rechargeable Feels good to hold Easy to use
ConsUncommon battery type

What a beautiful light
This light definitely has blinding power. I think its the perfect size to carry on the job. Every bit as bright as my Surefire M6-LT 900 lumen, but at 1/3 the size. Great for tracing out piping and conduit in a high and dirty ceiling in a manufacturing facility. Well worth the money spent.
ProsNice feel Bright as the dickens Rechargeable

Very bright, well built and the 26650 battery that came with it seems to last forever. My first led flash light, very happy with it.

Does the job - in spades.
I recently bought an R40 as a basic household / emergency light. Compact, rechargeable, .... and really bright on the highest setting. I carry an S10 in my shirt pocket and use it several times a day - but the R40 is for serious backup. Having been through various NYC blackouts and backcountry Iran and Syria, I have issues with darkness. Olight takes care of it - along with an amount of Goal Zero gear for persistent area illumination and a couple of Feuerhands for those into the 19th century. R40 - highly recommended.
